About our buses
Based in Norwich but regularly travelling across Norfolk and beyond, our eclectic fleet and equally charming team have earned an enviable reputation for providing an amazing service to our customers – but please don’t take our word for it.
“David and Beryl, what can I say! You made our wedding day! The bus was lovely, of course, with its wedding sign and decoration. But it was the driver that made it for me. What a lovely man! He helped me lock up the day time venue, was charming to our guests, even ensuring that some of them, who had strayed into a local boozer for a cheeky half, didn’t miss the bus. His good humour and tolerance for our school-coach-trip-singing was beyond the call of duty. My husband suggests that your strap-line should be: The Epitome of Classic English Public Transport Hospitality. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!” – Mr & Mrs Clark
We currently have two gorgeous double-decker buses which we hire out for special events such as weddings, proms or corporate days. Our 1965 London Routemaster has been chugging along Norfolk’s roads for 14 years, visiting venues all over the county with wedding parties and other groups.
Our open-top bus is also for hire – sure to be a hit in the summer months for all sorts of occasions, from school proms and weddings to sports team victory parades and promotional events.
We are pleased to now be able to offer two individually quirky buses so that we can provide something that’s just the ticket for your special occasion.

The Routemaster can transport the bridal party and/or guests (64 passenger carrying capacity) to the ceremony or your reception venue in style with no parking problems for your guests and everybody arrives together. The Routemaster is also a popular choice for school proms, Christmas party transport and more, or can be booked to take private groups on a Norfolk countryside tour.

1990 Leyland Olympian Open-Top Bus
In 2019 we introduced our open-top Leyland double-decker for use on private hires throughout the summer and beyond. This trusty vehicle was the Norwich Sightseeing bus for many years and we’re excited to launch it into the private hire market where it’s perfect for tours, proms, weddings and publicity and promotional events.
Our show-stopper open-topper can carry up to 74 seated passengers – including 39 under cover.
Having owned and operated open-top buses for sixteen years, our experience is second to none and you can rest assured you’ll be looked after by our friendly team.
